Haley Reinhart Performs at Hotel Cafe’s April Hootenanny


Haley Reinhart closed out an epic three hour night full of live music performed by a variety of talented artists at the Hotel Cafe’s monthly “Hootenanny”. Hootenanny takes place at Hotel Cafe’s second stage on the last Monday of every month. Different singers and musicians are invited to sing three songs each with a little help from the house band with no rehearsal whatsoever. Many of the singers were just meeting the band for the very first time just as they were taking the stage to perform their music.

This last Monday night featured singers: Kristen Toedtman, Zak Schaeffer, Melissa Polinar, Casey Abrams, Josiah Leming, Danielle Deandrea, Bruce Foreman, Suzanne Santo, and last but not least, Haley Reinhart.

Starting at approximately 8:00pm and ending at 11:00pm, the $5.00 cover is money well spent for a fun night full of great entertainment and music, which couldn’t be done without the awesome house band which includes: Drew Taubenfeld, Rich Hitman, Mark Stepro, Will Herrington, Ty Bailie, Philip Krohnengold, Erik Kertes, Patrick Taylor, Rob Humphreyes.

Haley performed a cover, an original unreleased track, and a newer original duet with Casey Abrams. You can watch all three performances below:

During the show Haley talked about her upcoming third studio album, and how the 60’s and Quentin Tarantino are some of the inspiration behind her new music. She stated that the new album will be out this summer. Stay tuned!

Haley Receives Epic Card Full Of Love

Hooray! The “Show Me Your Moves” music video is finally here!

I wanted to find a way to show Haley how much all of her fans truly love the single and music video, and I thought to myself, make a giant congratulations card! Turns out that’s a lot easier said than done. But, I was up for the challenge anyways because I wanted to create something really special for Haley to receive just a few days after the video was released. I reached out to Haliens from all over, even Haley’s friends and family, and I was able to get over 80 different messages and pictures to put into this card.


The work was a whole lot more than I had originally thought out! I spent the week making multiple runs to Michael’s for different art supplies. I probably spent over 15 hours total working on this. But I couldn’t be more proud of what I was able to create!

I was able to give the card to Haley yesterday night, at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood at her show. At first, we opened the card up and Haley says, “What is it?!” (A little overwhelming, I am sure). I then pointed out messages from her parents, her sister, friends, fellow Idol family, and tons of fans from all over. Haley was shocked at how I managed to get all of these people to send in their messages and put it all together on one giant card. She said that she loved it so much and could not wait to read everything later, and possibly cry. Don’t cry Haley!


I wanted to take the time to thank everyone who contributed to the card, I couldn’t have made it as awesome without you. And a special thank you to the fellow Haliens who genuinely wanted to pitch in and help me offset the costs of everything it took to make it. I appreciate it so  much.

Here’s a short video of me giving Haley the card, enjoy!

Today, Haley posted these to Twitter:

Hotel Cafe Show August 3rd In Hollywood California

Haley Reinhart, Mark Ballas, Dylan Chambers & BC Jean will be playing a show together at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, Sunday August 3rd. We just recently got to witness Haley, Mark, and Dylan along with Casey Abrams put on a fantastic show at the Room 5 Lounge a few weeks back in June.

For unknown reasons, Casey isn’t going to be there performing this time around. Taking his place is Mark Ballas’ girlfriend, singer/songwriter BC Jean. The show is listed as a 4 hour set, from 8pm-12am! You can purchase tickets to the show online here.

If you’re thinking about attending, be sure to buy your tickets ASAP, because their last show at Room 5 ended up selling out!

Haley hasn’t performed at the Hotel Cafe since November of 2012, in which she performed solo, with guitarist John Notto.

If you want an idea of what this show may be like (minus Casey of course), here’s a video of Haley, Mark, Dylan, BC & Casey performing “Hit The Road Jack” a few weeks ago:

Can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this time!
